Roadside Attraction

Grounded and braced

a straw waddle in place.

Rain melts dirt to mud.

Gravity lacks grace.

 

The sun lights up pieces

of old broke glass,

random rocks, and bits

of granite, gravel.

 

Soil by the side of the road,

disturbed,

accommodating weeds in need

of a place to make

flower and seed.

 

Open wide and on display

orange poppy

petals greet the day

with pride and passion.

 

The seduction of spring

is the promise of color’s

return, especially green.

 

Soil by the side of

the road, happy

as a gracious host in good company.

 

Bonus:  CAN YOU NAME THIS PLANT?  It has a beautiful flower and grows on slopes near roads…
